Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of Internet users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which process the information in giant chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field the second it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it really does make a difference if a large number of people are using a website simultaneously. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that support quick real-time interaction.

Node.js in Cloud Hosting

All Linux cloud hosting offered by our company support Node.js and you’ll be able to add this innovative platform to your web hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades menu in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You will be able to choose the amount of instances for this specific upgrade, in other words how many different sites/platforms will utilize Node.js simultaneously, and you can add as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also permit you to specify the precise path to your .js app and to decide whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the physical server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible through a random port number chosen by our cloud hosting platform. On top of that, you can stop or restart any instance that you’ve activated, edit the location of the .js application or view the output of the running instances with just a few clicks of the mouse from your hosting Control Panel using a truly easy-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you’ll be able to make use of the full potential of Node.js with any web application that you host on our cloud platform, due to the fact that it is available with each and every plan that we offer. You can add the number of instances, or applications which can use Node.js, from the Hepsia Control Panel with which you can administer your account. The only things that you’ll need do after that will be to include the path within the account to the .js file that will use Node.js and to select the IP address that will be used in order to access that file. You can select a dedicated IP address in case you’ve got one, or any of the physical server’s shared IP addresses. Our platform will also allocate a random port. With the Node.js controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll be able to view a given app’s output or to start/restart/delete any of the instances that you’ve created.

Node.js in VPS Hosting

You can get Node.js with each of the Linux VPS hosting services offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can configure it with a couple of clicks even if you haven’t got any experience with a similar software platform, as Hepsia is very intuitive and user-friendly. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the directory path to the .js file that will use the Node.js platform and to choose the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated one or your VPS’s shared IP. A random access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limitations on how many websites can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for lots of websites and enjoy an astonishing overall performance. Quick-access buttons in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will permit you to start, to cancel or to reboot any Node.js instance separately and to check their output.

Node.js in Dedicated Web Hosting

Node.js is included with all Linux dedicated hosting services that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so you’ll be able to make the most of this event-driven platform once your server is assembled. As the Hepsia Control Panel is very easy to use, you’ll be able to make that without any problems, even if you haven’t used the Node.js platform before, since everything that you’ll need to do on your end is indicate the location of the .js file that will use the platform and the IP address that will be used to access this file. The latter can be a dedicated IP or can be shared with other sites. You can set up as many Node.js instances as you want on our really powerful dedicated machines and each of them can be managed independently – you will be able to start, to reboot or to deactivate it, to see the output of the app that uses it, etc. This can be done via the user-friendly, point-and-click Hepsia Control Panel, so you can use the power of the Node.js platform with ease.
